Bag’s Take-Away:
 I guess it wasn’t an option for the NYT to simply ignore a new book of economic proposals, these essays brought forth by one George W. Bush. (He’s purported to have also written the introduction.) Given the photo they chose to accompany the article, however, seems we’re just looking at more backlash.

Bag’s Take-Away:
"The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around."
That’s what the “showrunners” of Game of Thrones had to say about the fact that one of the heads that appears on a spike in the series is, in fact, a replica of former president George W. Bush. Of course, their too-cute disclaimer begs a question: How is it they happened to have a decapitated version of George W. Bush “hanging around”?

Bag’s Take-Away:
Bush Advisor Karl Rove and former Bush Press Secretary Dana Perino on their way out of the Bush portrait unveiling at the White House yesterday. Is the best caption “I’ll be back!” or “Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.” Besides Perino captured as mad woman, it’s a flashback to the Bush bacchanal.

One of my favorites of the great photos of the presidential portrait unveiling yesterday. Getty photographer Mandel Ngan manages to capture each actor as we have always known them: the “pause for laughs” expression on George Bush’s face and Laura Bush’s trademarked camera beam in the wrong direction. Ah, the Bush Administration…sigh.
